This district is home to numerous artists'workshops, theatres, and has a personality all of its own with its stairways, small squares and superb viws! Down below, the Saône flows by peacefully.

Bocuse is setting a restaurant and a unique fast-food concept here!
Vieux Lyon and Fourvière

The splendour of the Renaissance is marvllously expressed in Old Lyon, including St Jean and its cathedral, St Paul and Georges. The 'Traboules' (passageways) are most numerous here, weaving a network of secret passages between the streets, via vaulted corridors and interior courtyards leading out onto Renaissance galleries. You can explore all of Lyon's Italian charm, including along the river Saône which reflects the mediaeval and Renaissance facades lining the banks with their ochre and pink shades. Why not take a cruise along the Saône as far as Ile Barbe.
